You know all those (mostly annoying) "heads-up" helmet display options that promise the ability to view stuff like your speed, trip info, maps and the like, without taking your eyes off the road? Ever imagine having a Ralph Gibson-like retinal overlay instead of such external contraptions?

Me neither, but someone's come up with this:

https://www.cnet.com/tech/mobile/mojo-vision-crams-its-contact-lens-with-ar-display-processor-and-wireless-tech/?ftag=CAD1acfa04&bhid=18910724187539994501534683184172&mid=13487085&cid=534903619

Discuss.

Very sci-fi. I'm not opposed, but I couldn't wear it because it would aggravate my dry eyes. Now, if it morphs into a permanent lens replacement that would automatically adjust to correct vision, I'm interested!

I dunno, GG, would you have to strap the charger over your eye when you sleep? 🧐

HA! By the time they can create an autofocus lens for the human eye, I'm sure they'd go all Tesla and have touchless charging via the bedside "micro power-tower". The MPT doubles as an Amazon Alexa speaker projector for streaming or surfing using your ceiling as the "screen".

I look forward to the day when our digital overlords can beam ads directly onto my retinas while I sleep.
